What You Need To Know About Soapstone Countertops

Soapstone is another possibility to be considered. It is metamorphic rock, created when talc and magnesium are pressed and heated, without melting, between teutonic plates passing over each other. This is referred to as subduction.  People that have it seem to fall in love with it. It’s not hard (3 on Moh’s Scale of Hardness), but it is malleable. Soapstone could dent, but it will not shatter. Travertine is supersaturated limestone sediment left after evaporation of water from hot springs or waterfalls. Its natural formation leaves banding, and attractive concentric rings. Stalagmites and stalactites in caves are examples of travertine. Travertine is not exceptionally hard (around 4 on the Moh’s Scale of Hardness), but it has a unique look and is affordable.
